Visual Sound Acquires Kunz

BROOMALL, PA—Visual Sound has acquired Kunz, a Baltimore, MD-based audiovisual equipment supplier and service provider, primarily serving local government and various school districts throughout the Baltimore, Washington, DC, and Virginia regions.

According to Karen Bogosian, president and CEO of Visual Sound, Kunz’s high level of experience made it a good match for Visual Sound. “Through its outstanding expertise and customer service, the company has cultivated strong relationships with various school systems, including both public and private institutions, as well as many local colleges and universities. The company’s reputation for offering outstanding products and service compliments Visual Sound’s commitment to serving our educational clients.”

Founded in 1949, Kunz originally started as a 16-millimeter film rental company. The acquisition will enable Kunz to offer additional manufacturer lines currently represented by Visual Sound, broadening their technology offering. “Here at Kunz, we are very excited to now be a part of Visual Sound,” said Cindy Davis, owner of Kunz. “Through this acquisition, we can now offer our current customers a broader spectrum of products and a higher quality of services. We can offer potential customers services that we could not offer in the past. By being a part of Visual Sound, we now have the right product mixture for system integrations.”
